Priceless

For many reasons (see Baxter for a few), I think that this Christian parody of Sir Mix-A-Lot is an absolute scream.

As many of you know or probably figured out without too much trouble: I'm not a KJV girl. I like to read various translations done by committee into modern English for comparative purposes ("modern English", among other things, excludes not so dear old King James), but my preferred Bible is (yes indeed) a black leatherbound NIV with a ribbon bookmark, a plethora of footnotes,* and a concordance and index section at the back that I wish were thicker. It is a red letter edition, but I'm indifferent about the use of red ink. It'd be perfectly fine with me if all the ink were black.




*We are very fond of footnotes, oh yes my precious.
